I need a little help. My goal is to upload a PDF file to a URL and read the HTML response from the server. Is it possible to do this using the post function?

Post(UploadUrl.rawValue,"C:\Users\myFile.pdf","application/pdf")

Mayank, thanks for your quick response. Maybe you can help with syntax for the post function. Currently, I am getting no response from the server when using the post function but when testing the put function I get an error that indicates the put function was not accepted by the server. I can make successful file uploads using a simple HTML form that has the post method enctype of multipart/form-data.

Try using URL function(Page 105) to make a post-call and read the response:

A sample get request looks like this:

var url = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/todos/1";

TextField1.rawValue = Get(url);

Thanks!
